Thought id mention it as hopefully might just push somebody whose thinking about it to actually take the plunge.
There have been a number of occasions now and too many where not being first aid trained would have left me and friends unable to assist
Travelling back from Underwater Explorers via Paul Taylor's my friend Egis and i were just commenting what a beautiful day it was going through the forest this previous weekend.
We then come across an upturned Land Rover with children climbing our from it
The four children had clambered out but mum was inside at the back and we couldnt move her because of the injuries she was complaining of.
Exact details arent needed but it was some time for the ambulance to arrive...
If you and your family would be greatfull for assistance in these circumstances i would suggest its worth thinking about being or becoming competent to give some assistance yourself.
I have no links to any first aid training offered on here
